BREAKING: The Match Factory is selling foreign at Toronto for the Kelly Reichardt-directed Night Moves, which stars Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning and Peter Sarsgaard as three radical environmentalists who come together to execute the most spectacular direct action event of their lives: the explosion of a hydroelectric dam — the very source and symbol of the energy-sucking, resource-devouring industrial culture they despise.
Match Factory today closed a French rights deal with Paris-based Ad Vitam Distribution, with Ad Vitam’s Alexandra Henochsberg and Gregory Gajos making the deal with Match Factory’s Brigitte Suarez and Michael Weber. Reichardt, who last directed Meek’s Cutoff, wrote the script with Jon Raymond. Neil Kopp and Anish Savjani are producing with Chris Maybach, Saemi Kim and Rodrigo Teixeira. Saerom Kim, Lourenço Sant’ Anna, Alejandro de Leon, Todd Haynes and Larry Fessenden are executive producing. UTA reps Reichardt.
